Newstalgia Mid-Week Concert featuring Orchestre de Paris, conducted by Alain Altinoglu with Pianist Romain Descharmes in music of Chabrier, Saint-Saens and Florent Schmitt. Recorded live in concert by Radio France Musique on May 16, 2012.
Over to Paris this week for a concert by Orchestre de Paris, conducted by Alain Altinoglu and featuring Pianist Romain Descharmes in a program of music by Chabrier, Saint-Saens and Florent Schmitt.
The venerable war-horse Espana by Emmanuel Chabrier opens the concert, followed by a wildly well-received Saint-Saens Piano concerto Number 2, with Pianist Romain Descharmes, who follows with two encores. The concert concludes with the seldom heard (at least here in the U.S.) La Tragèdie de Salomè by the early 20th century composer Florent Schmitt.
A good concert of mostly familiar music done as only a French orchestra can.
The concert is broken up between two players - the Chabrier and the Saint-Saens (and encores) are on the top player and the Schmitt is on the bottom player.
